M&S yelled at by people about a teabag
Don't mess with people's tea. Seriously. Cups and pots of tea are more valuable and cherished than family members to most people, which Marks & Spencers found out recently.
One lady ranted about the strength of the tea offered to her elderly mother at a Marks & Spencers. And she wasn't messing about. Her spleen, which you can see below included the line "SHAME ON YOU", as well as the typical threat of 'and me and absolutely everyone I know or have ever met will never shop at any of your stores for as long as we collectively live'.
Now, you might thinking that everyone else on Facebook would've laughed and pointed out that there might be an overreaction afoot... but that wasn't the case at all.
Turns out everyone else is really good at summoning disgust at the drop of a hat.
One person spat: "Marks and Spencer you should hang your head in shame, disgraceful behaviour to anybody never mind their age, how much is a tea bag compared to good customer service?"
Another chipped in with: "The sad thing is if the staff member gave the tea bag he or she would of losing there job for a tea bag. A company that has forgotten how to treat staff and there customers. [sic]" Someone jumped in: "That's me and my family finished shopping in your store. Your deeds have been despicable to say the least. Shame on you."
An eyewitness charged in too! "Marie I was standing there when your mum asked and I couldn't believe this, neither could she, it's an absolute joke as some people like tea strong and a tea bag costs less than 1 cent and I can't see their reason for not giving her an extra one"
Naturally, some people mocked the whole reaction, which, if you'd like to see the venting and shrieking, you can click here to see the M&S Facebook TEA SCANDAL.
